2375 poulan chain saw brake is shot,how do I fix it?

I have a poulan 2375 chain saw, the chain brake doesn't work at all. How do I rebuild it? A spring inside may have broke,I think it is pushing on the housing. I won't want to open until I know how to fix it.

You Likely by this time have resolved this. Mine messed up one day and I found a spring inside it. This spring wraps around the counter weights and pulls them together at idle speed, allowing the chain to stop, without stopping the motor. As you throttle it up and the RPM increases the spring allows the weights to push outward , engaging the chain. I have used mine without it, but I'm sure that would not be a recommended procedure, as the chain is always engaged, even when idling.

How do i unlock brake on a Poulan wildthing 2375 chainsaw


First, stop your engine. Check to make sure that the chain brake isn't engaged. The chain brake can activate automatically by a sudden movement or impact. You can disengage the chain brake by pulling the chain brake hand guard back against the front handle and releasing slowly. If the chain brake is disengaged and the chain does not turn; turn off the saw, then check the drive links on the chain, the bar groove and the sprocket nose on the bar. A burr on the drive links will bind the chain in the bar. If the bar has been pinched, the chain will not pass freely through the groove. If a sliver of wood has gotten into the sprocket nose, it will not turn at all. Also, look at the drive sprocket on the saw itself to see if it has a groove worn into it. A drive sprocket with a groove worn into it will damage the chain.

PLEASE do not shout. Rules here do not allow us to contact you directly. Without a serial number I can only get you close. My best guess follows:
A Poulan "2375LE Gas Saw Type 2" link below (may not be your saw):
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/PWE/2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2/75.2375LE-Gas-Saw-Type-2.1.59.1.html
It appears you must purchase the entire clutch cover. See the "Handle, Chassis & Bar Assembly"; item 36; pn 545139903; $18.50.

All Poulan 2375 saws can be found here:
Poulan.com
http://www.ordertree.com/modelinfo/POULAN-WEED-EATER/75.59.html
The dash number of your serial number is the type.

There are multiple drawings, this one may not be the correct one. The detail isn't very good but this is the best illustration for your saw. The "Handle, Chassis, and Bar Assembly" shows what is available. GL
